If you've ever attended a football game, you might have witnessed heat rising from the sweat-soaked head of a lineman taking his place on the bench.
Heads get hot—and in sports, letting your body overheat can be a huge detriment, not only to your performance on the field, but also to your health. In fact, heat illness is a leading cause of death and disability during participation in high school and college sports.
That's why MISSION Athletecare worked with elite athletes like Dwyane Wade, Reggie Bush and Georges St-Pierre to develop the Enduracool line of products.
The bandana serves as an instant cooling device, tapping into one of the body's biggest "pulse points," the temples, to delay fatigue and allow you to perform at a high level, even in the sweltering heat.
Simply apply water to the bandana, wring out the excess liquid, and give it a snap before applying it to your head. The bandana's temperature will immediately drop to 30 degrees below average body temperature. You'll be feeling cool and refreshed in minutes.
Tennis star Serena Williams is used to training in the heat, but the sky-high temperatures at events in places like Australia are difficult to endure. Williams says, "It can get up to 130 degrees on-court, and it feels like your whole body is burning. When I overheat, I can't perform at my best and I can't focus. Using Enduracool helps me stay cool, calm and focused."
Enduracool products are completely chemical-free and machine washable. The bandana even offer UPF 50 protection from the sun.
